Academic Advising

What is Academic Advising?

Here's the official answer from the National Academic Advising Association:

Academic advising, based in the teaching and learning mission of higher education, is a series of intentional interactions with a curriculum, pedagogy, and a set of student learning outcomes. Academic advising synthesizes and contextualizes students' educational experiences within the frameworks of their aspirations, abilities and lives to extend learning beyond campus boundaries and timeframes.

(National Academic Advising Association, 2006)

Academic Advising in the Department of Applied Health Science is a chance to explore together with your advisor how you can learn and grow at IU and in the next stage of your life; how you can achieve your goals and perhaps expand them; and how IU can be an even better place with you here.
